OUR 2016 SHORT INSPECTION CONFIRMED OUR PREVIOUS GRADE OF ‘GOOD’. INSPECTORS SAID:

  • Teachers have worked successfully to ensure that progress made from starting points by students on A Level courses remains outstanding and that progress on the International Baccalaureate course is also outstanding.
  • Students studying at Level 3 benefit from a broad curriculum choice that allows a good range of combinations of academic and vocational courses, in addition to the highly successful International Baccalaureate programme.
  • Students enjoy being at the college and value very highly the inclusive, tranquil atmosphere.
  • Teaching, learning and assessment are of a consistently high standard and students enjoy the vibrant and challenging lessons they attend.

“I was very impressed by the number and variety of courses available at the College, as well as the facilities and the grounds. The vibe here is very welcoming and inspiring, with both the teachers and the students being friendly and helpful.”
